Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

The Pentagon has been warning for years that the decade-long budget caps Congress set in place four years ago won't work -- at least if DoD hopes to execute the defense strategy that's on the books right now. With sequestration set to return this year, officials say they'll try to make things a bit less abstract. The Pentagon publishes a report that details exactly what would happen to individual bases and weapons systems with a $30 billion cut. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu writes about DoD's sequestration messaging strategy as part of this week's edition of Inside the Reporter's Notebook.

Roger Zakheim, Counsel, Covington and Burling

President Obama's 2016 budget request for the Defense Department is $38 billion more than the Budget Control Act calls for. He's asking for $534 billion, but any number over $498 billion will trigger sequestration. Roger Zakheim is counsel at Covington and Burling, former general counsel and deputy staff director of the House Armed Services Committee and also former deputy assistant secretary of Defense. In Depth with Francis Rose asked him if the budget is as "dead-on-arrival" as Republicans in Congress make it sound.
